The superb thing about driving across Slovenia is that the distances are short, the traffic light, and the roads are of good quality. But don’t let its size fool you; Slovenia is among the most diverse places on Earth. You will be staying in cosy accommodations, located in the heart of the place you are exploring.
Your road-trip begins in Ljubljana, Europe’s greenest and most charming capital. Heading east, you’ll arrive in Maribor, our second largest city, followed by Ptuj, the oldest town dating back to Roman times. Each of these urban destinations and their outskirts have ample opportunities to keep you entertained. The road then takes you to the majestic Kamnik-Savinja Alps, where you’ll discover some of the most picturesque corners of Slovenia, before moving on to world-famous Lake Bled. Within the magical embrace of Triglav National Park, you will fall in love with Lake Bohinj, enjoy the Alpine resort of Kranjska Gora, and the scenic paradise of Soča Valley. This region promises incredible hiking, cycling, rafting, ziplining, rock climbing and canyoning, to list just a few wonderful activities.
From the highlands of Kobarid and Tolmin, with its lovely gorges and waterfalls, you’ll make your way across Slovenia’s windswept Karst, where visits to the spellbinding Postojna Cave and the medieval phenomenon of Predjama Castle are obligatory. The next stop is the coast, where the Mediterranean climate and pretty seaside towns of Piran, Koper and Portorož with their surrounding treasures will present you with yet another face of Slovenia’s diverse character. The vineyards of Goriška Brda, and the nearby winegrowing gem of Vipava Valley are sure to satisfy all your senses. Then, on the final leg of your journey, you’ll pass a few more gorgeous sites, including a UNESCO cave system, before coming full circle in Ljubljana.
